Temple B'nai Torah presents:

'THIS IS HUNGER' exhibit and tour

Sept. 14-18, Bellevue


Temple B'nai Torah is proud to host "This Is Hunger," a national touring exhibit that will be in Bellevue Sept. 14 - 18, 2017. This first-of-its-kind free exhibit will bring visitors face to face with the stark realities of hunger through state-of-the-art storytelling techniques and interactive elements.

"We often think of hunger in stereotypes, such as the homeless person walking down the street, but the reality of hunger in Washington state is much more complex," said Rabbi David A. Lipper, Senior Rabbi at Temple B'nai Torah. "This exhibit gives us an opportunity to engage the whole community with an incredible experience that will change the way you look at hunger. We want to help everyone understand that those who are hungry can be your neighbor who just lost her job or the teenager at school who can't concentrate properly because he isn't eating enough nutritious food at home."

Washington is the 23rd hungriest state in the nation. One in five children in Washington state lives in a household that struggles to put food on the table.

To raise awareness about the prevalence of hunger in this region, Temple B'nai Torah has partnered with MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger to bring "This Is Hunger" to a local audience. "This Is Hunger" takes participants on a compelling journey that draws them into the real-life circumstances of these individuals and deepens their awareness about who in America struggles with hunger and why.

"This Is Hunger" is housed in a 53-foot-long double expandable semitrailer that, when parked and opened on both sides, provides nearly 1,000 square feet of exhibit space. The exhibit is on a national tour that is stopping in more than 30 cities across the country.

This Is Hunger is open to the public and will be in the Temple B'nai Torah parking lot Sept. 14 - 18. Timed tickets are free and only available through at the "Find Tickets" link.
